"In 2006 I started out as a newbie in S. Korea. Then in 2010, I started my MA TESOL program and gained a wealth of knowledge at Anaheim University. I spent 9 years in S.Korea, moved back to California in 2016 and transitioned into an assistant academic director role and now Academic Director. Along the way the education I received from AU has not only given me "street cred" but provided me with an amazing opportunity to present at MECA (Multicultural Educational Conference in Anaheim). THANK YOU ANAHEIM UNIVERSITY for being a part of my professional development. I am forever grateful." – English Language Center Director of Courses Yuri Angie White
